Typing hasn’t been easy lately. I managed to tear a tendon
in my right hand. It’s getting better every day, and I hope to be done with the
brace very soon. Despite all that, I did meet my deadline for the Colorado
lumber baron story. The manuscript is now with my editor, and I’m onto my next
It happened whether I wanted it to or not, Fall is here so I
must embrace it. I’ll dig out jeans, sweatshirts, warm socks and shoes and look
forward to all the fun and adventure the cooler weather will bring.
We did end our summer on with a wonderful event. Last Sunday
we had an impromptu family reunion. One of my brothers is moving to Tennessee.
I’m going to miss him and his wife, but look forward to visiting them. It so
happened all of his children were in Minnesota for the weekend, and I’m so
thankful they all stopped by our house. My boys and their families all came
over, as did more family and friends. It was a day I’ll always remember. (When
my alarm went off Monday morning, I had to push snooze. It had only been 6
hours since I’d been sitting on the front porch drinking wine with my niece
I also must say thank you to all of you who have attended my
book signings! These events have been so fun. There will be another one this
weekend at the Barnes and Noble in St. Cloud (Saturday at 1:00) and then again
next weekend at Buffalo Book and Coffee in Buffalo on Saturday, Oct. 3 at 10:00.
Hope to see more of you at those!
The final book of my Daughters of the Roaring Twenties
mini-series will be released on October 1st. I’ve had a great time with
these books and thank you to all of you for your support and reviews. I’m so
glad people are enjoying this time period. Next up will be Saving Marina in February. Following that will be When A Cowboy Says I Do in April, and Her Cheyenne Warrior will be released
during the summer of 2016.
Right now I’m working on a western set in Colorado during
the railroad wars and then I’ll start working on one more western that includes
a heroine who had been delivered to Kansas by one of the first orphan trains.
I am so grateful for all the wonderful events life provides!
Three of the grandchildren (and Bear) were here yesterday,
and spent the entire day outside, just playing. It was the perfect summer day. I
see people posting on facebook about sweatshirts, football, pumpkin flavored
everything, and other ‘fall’ stuff, and, although I am happy for those who
think fall is the best time of year—for this world would be a very boring place
if we were all the same—I’m one of those people who want summer to stick around
as long as possible. I’m not referring to 100 degree weather, for I’m not
really a fan of having the air conditioner on all the time. It’s more of the ‘relaxed’
atmosphere that comes along with summer. Everyone is still very busy, but it
doesn’t hold the same ‘rush-rush’ feel as other times of the year.I guess it just boils down to the fact that
summer is my favorite time of the year. Then again, I truly do appreciate
living in Minnesota where we do get to experience each season to its fullest.
Last weekend I dedicated time to using up the plums from our
trees—we now have plenty of plum jam, jelly, and butter to last the winter.
This weekend we are having a family get-together. Just a small one. We’ve had
my husband’s cousin’s son (I call him our nephew just to make it easy) staying
with us the past few months because his job brought him to Minnesota. We have a
spare bedroom so there was no reason for him to live in a motel for months. He’s
been a delightful young man to have around and we are going to miss him now
that his job is taking him to Missouri.
We are hoping to get one more trip up north in before the
leaves start to turn, and of course I have a couple more book signings still on
the agenda for September.
On Friday, September 11th I’ll be at the Maple
Grove Barnes and Noble at 6:00 pm and on Saturday, September 26th, I’ll
be at the St. Cloud Barnes and Noble. Please stop by if you are in the area!
The Rebel Daughter will be released on September 1st.
A year ago I was putting the final touches on these stories, and I’m so happy
people are enjoying them! I’m now anxiously waiting to see what the Harlequin
art department has in store for Saving
Marina—my Salem Witch Trial story. It will be released in print on January
19th and ebook on February 1st. After that, in April I believe, will come When A Cowboy Says I Do—a story in a anthology
that will include three Spring Wedding stories.
Continue to enjoy your summer days, and keep smiling. Life is
No more watching from the sidelines for Twyla Nightingale: her feet are
firmly on the dance floor! She won't let anyone sour the delicious taste of
freedom—especially not Forrest Reynolds, back in town after all this
…there's a guy who thinks she's the bee's knees.
Forrest didn't expect a warm welcome from the Nightingale sisters, not after
their lives had been so dramatically upturned. But seeing the challenge in
Twyla's eyes, Forrest takes this rebel for a wild dance she won't forget!
RT reviews had this to say about The Rebel Daughter--You’ll
experience plenty of the Roaring ‘20s atmosphere in the second in Robinson’s
series. This time, she’s added some wild adventures, a mystery and loads of
sexual tension to the mix, keeping readers on their toes. They’ll eagerly await
the next installment of the saga.
The ebook version will be released on September 1st! Next up will be Josie's story!
The book signing this past weekend at the Barnes and Noble in Roseville was wonderful! It was so great to see people I hadn't seen for ages--and I mean ages!
The next one will be on Friday, September 11 at 6:00 pm at the Barnes and Noble in Maple Grove!
The Wrong Cowboy
is on sale for $.99 for a limited time, and it’s really making it’s way onto
best-selling lists! Thank you, thank you, thank you, to all who has purchased
this book! I sincerely appreciate your support, and I hope you enjoy Marie and
We had a lovely weekend at my brother’s cabin on the lake.
There is nothing like watching the sun set from the deck of a pontoon boat. And before we left home for the lake, we
celebrated our granddog, Bear’s, birthday. He turned eight, and is such a good
sport when it comes to the things Grandma makes him do.
On Tuesday of this week the print version of The Bootlegger’s Daughterwill be
released! (Ebook version will be August 1st) Heroes and Heartbreakers shared a ‘First Look’ about the book and a wonderful review on
their blog! And CataRomance provided a great review for The Runaway Daughter on their site this weekend. One last thing…Harlequin
will feature The Bootlegger’s Daughter
on their Facebook page with a Spot the Difference Cover on August 21st.
I also have several book signings happening at Barnes and Noble
in August and September. I’ll post the locations and dates when we get a bit
On the writing side, I completed the final review of Saving
Marina, the Salem Witch Trials story, and learned it will be released in
February 2016. I’m currently working on the edits for the Cheyenne Indian story
and the Spring wedding anthology.
Oh, and I have company coming this week!
Keep counting your blessings, they are everywhere!!
